Richard Sternberg on the Trail of the Immaterial Genome

On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Richard Sternberg, research fellow at the Biologic Institute, speaks on his mathematical/logical work showing the difficulty of identifying genes purely with material phenomena, and that DNA doesn’t have all that’s needed to direct the development of organisms.

Dr. Richard Sternberg: Whale Evolution and Living Waters, Pt. 2

Today’s episode of ID the Future from the vault continues a discussion of why the idea of land-to-sea whale evolution doesn’t wash. CSC Senior Fellow and evolutionary biologist Richard Sternberg focuses on material from the documentary Living Waters: Intelligent Design in the Oceans of the Earth, and explains why neither natural selection nor neutral drift cannot explain the transition from a land mammal to a fully aquatic whale. Standard evolutionary models would either require implausibly large breeding populations (greater than that of any mammal species) or a waiting period far longer than the given 8-9 million years.

Dr. Richard Sternberg: Whale Evolution and Living Waters

In this ID the Future from the vault, hear an interview with Dr. Richard Sternberg, evolutionary biologist and CSC Senior Fellow, whose discussion of whale origins is featured in Illustra Media’s documentary, Living Waters: Intelligent Design in the Oceans of the Earth. Sternberg critiques whale evolution, noting that the timespan is too short for the bodyplan modifications needed to transition from a land mammal to a whale.

Evolutionary Biologist Richard Sternberg Discusses Modern Genomics and Junk DNA

On this episode of ID The Future from the vault, Biologic Institute’s Dr. Richard Sternberg explains what a gene is, how it works and how our understanding of genes and DNA has changed over the years. He also discusses the growing number of discoveries that are overturning the notion of junk DNA.

Dr. Richard Sternberg: Whale Evolution and Living Waters, Pt. 2

On this second episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Dr. Richard Sternberg, evolutionary biologist and CSC Senior Fellow, whose discussion of whale origins is featured in Illustra Media’s new documentary, Living Waters: Intelligent Design in the Oceans of the Earth. Sternberg critiques conventional accounts of whale evolution, noting that neither natural selection or neutral drift cannot explain the transition between a land mammal and a fully aquatic whale. Standard evolutionary models would either require very large breeding population sizes (greater than that of any species of mammals) or a waiting period four or more times longer than the given 8-9 million years.

On Human Origins: Is Our Genome Full of Junk DNA? Pt 5

On this episode of ID the Future, biologist Richard Sternberg continues with the fifth part of his presentation of evidence that refutes the myth that the human genome is full of junk DNA. This is the second in a series from a recent Science and Human Origins conference featuring Dr. Sternberg, John West, Ann Gauger and Casey Luskin.
